This is my first Weekend Update. Ok so I stole it from SNL but I just wanted to talk a little bit about my favorite tournament. I have to say I’ve been a little distracted by the World Cup this past month.
This Sunday, July 13 is the World Cup Final. Wow, I can’t believe it’s been one month since the whole tournament started. Who could have guessed that Germany and Argentina would be the final two teams and who could have predicted the shocking meltdown of the Brazilian Team. I admit that I knew it would be hard for them to beat Germany after losing Neymar and the captain Thiago Silva. I even predicted Germany would win that match but I never expected my beloved Brazil to completely fall apart and be crushed by the German tanks 7 to 1! It was so sad to watch! ;(
There were some great teams that surprised many fans. Some of my favorites, Colombia, Costa Rica and Chile. Great job by all of them especially Costa Rica and Colombia for making it to the Quarter Finals and going out like champs. Costa Rica was the Dark Horse and held up nicely even when Arjen Robben from The Netherlands pulled his signature move, The Dive. Thankfully Argentina put a stop to that nonsense. 😉
I’m looking forward to the finale closing ceremonies because Shakira will be performing, LaLaLa (Brazil 2014), which is a song she wrote for the World Cup but it was not selected as the official song. Anyway, I think FIFA made a big mistake by not choosing Shakira from the beginning to write and perform the Official World Cup song as the Pitbull song was kind of a bust. You live and learn I guess. The worldwide fans requested Shakira and now she will be there to close things off properly. People are so excited that someone leaked a rehearsal of her performance in Brazil with Carlinhos Brown. Can’t wait to see it live!
I’m sad to see the tournament come to an end but the memories and inspiration will last a lifetime. Until Russia 2018!
Have a great weekend!
